"Start making. Start being the change you want to see in this world."
From the psychedelic typography used in 'Make Love Not War' posters of the 60s, to the solitary raised fist, take a long, hard look at some of the most memorable and striking protest artwork from across the world and throughout history. With an emphasis on design, analyse each artwork to understand how colour, symbolism, technique, typography and much more play an important role in communication, and learn about some of the most influential historical movements.
Tips and activities are also included to get you started on making some of your own protest art.
Guided by activist, lecturer and speaker De Nichol's powerful own narrative and stunningly illustrated by a collaboration of young artists from around the world, including Diana Dagadita, Olivia Twist, Molly Mendoza, Raul Oprea and Diego Becas, Art of Protest is as inspiring as it is empowering.
"This fresh guide, which introduces an array of diverse artists and activists and offers insightful tips about art, should inspire aspiring activists."
"Each chapter ends with steps readers can follow to make their voices heard through creative and beautiful art that is full of meaning and emotion. This book would appeal to teens who are ready to take on the injustices of the world as well as art teachers who will be inspired to include protest art in their curriculums."
